Background

I am a fisheries biologist with B.Sc. (1977) and Ph.D. (1986) degrees in Zoology from the University of British Columbia. I am a Canadian citizen and grew up in Vancouver, which I still consider my home even though I have not lived there for more than twenty-five years. I have worked in British Columbia, Ontario, and Michigan. In 2006 I enjoyed a four-month return visit to Vancouver for part of my sabbatical.

I worked as an environmental consultant and a government research scientist prior to joining the faculty at MSU. From 1980 to 1988 I worked as a systems ecologist with ESSA Technologies Ltd. ESSA is an innovative, quantitatively-oriented consulting firm that was originally created to provide expertise in modeling and adaptive management to government and corporate clients with environmental concerns. During my eight years with ESSA I participated in a variety of projects in resource management and environmental assessment, including fishery management, acid rain effects on fisheries, and aquatic effects of power plant operation.

In 1988 I became a research scientist with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, where I led the Great Lakes Salmonid Unit. In the eight years I worked with the Salmonid Unit we conducted research on various aspects of salmonine ecology in the Great Lakes including:

  • examining the feasibility of Atlantic salmon restoration in Lake Ontario;
  • developing methods and models to understand riverine salmonine habitat-population interactions
  • building models to investigate the sustainability of Great Lakes salmonine stocking practices; and
  • exploring the relationship between watershed land-use patterns and the quality of riverine habitats.


In 1997 I returned to academia, joining an active and growing Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Michigan State University. My recent research has focused on Great Lakes fishery management and particularly sea lamprey control and applications of decision analysis to problems such as salmon stocking and percid harvest strategies. My students work on field and modeling projects. From 2008 to 2014 I served as Chairperson of the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. Since 2014 I have served as Assistant Director for MSU AgBioResearch.

Research

My primary research interests center around understanding fish population dynamics and applying quantitative tools such as simulation modeling and decision analysis to practical fishery management problems. My research has a strong applied flavor, and frequently involves working closely with fishery management agencies. I am especially interested in the challenge of determining critical uncertainties for fishery management, and the related question of assigning an appropriate value to reducing uncertainty. I like my research program, and thus my students' projects, to comprise a mixture of empirical and theoretical work: field and experimental studies; modeling and analysis.

Some of the problems that my research group and I have tackled include:

  • sea lamprey control in the St. Marys River
  • evaluation and refinement of larval assessment methods for sea lamprey control
  • recruitment dynamics of sea lampreys and their implications for alternative control
  • energy dynamics of Great Lakes Chinook salmon
  • assessment of Lake Michigan salmonine stocking policies using decision analysis
  • development of efficient assessment methods for determining fish species composition of Great Lakes streams
  • habitat supply-population dynamics models for Lake Erie walleye, Lake Superior lake trout, and Lake Superior cisco
  • evaluation of harvest policies for Lake Erie walleye and Lake Michigan yellow perch using decision analysis
  • factors influencing differences in natural mortality rates among lake whitefish stocks
  • applying "Management Strategy Evaluation" to Pacific salmon management in western Alaska
  • developing an adaptive management strategy for management of double-crested cormorants in Michigan
